Dermal fillers 101

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that are used to add volume to the skin and smooth out wrinkles, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance. They are made from a variety of materials, including hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.


When injected into the skin, dermal fillers plump up the area and provide a natural-looking result. The effects of dermal fillers are temporary and typically last for several months before the body gradually breaks down and absorbs the material.


Dermal fillers can be an effective solution for a wide range of concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Hollow cheeks and under-eye circles

  • Thin or uneven lips

  • Scars

  • Acne scars

  • Unbalanced facial features

The benefits of dermal fillers include:

  • Non-surgical: Dermal fillers are injected directly into the skin, so they do not require surgery or general anesthesia.

  • Minimal downtime: Unlike surgical procedures, dermal fillers have minimal downtime and most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.

  • Natural-looking results: Dermal fillers are designed to provide natural-looking results that enhance your appearance without looking overdone or artificial.

  • Customizable: The specific type of dermal filler and the amount used can be customized to your individual needs and goals.

As with any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with dermal fillers. These include:

  • Bruising and swelling at the injection site

  • Infection

  • Allergic reaction to the filler material

  • Asymmetry or unevenness in the treated area

  • Formation of lumps or bumps under the skin

  • Vascular occlusions

The procedure for administering dermal fillers is relatively quick and simple. First, the area to be treated will be cleaned and numbed with a topical anesthetic. The filler will then be carefully injected into the desired area using a fine needle or cannula.


Overall, dermal fillers can be a safe and effective way to enhance the appearance of the skin and provide a more youthful, rejuvenated look. Drop us a message to determine if dermal fillers are right for you and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs and goals.
